Limiting Special Characters in a Password RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to limit the special characters that are allowed in a password either in Active Directory itself or with Forefront Identity Manager? I ask, not because I have a dislike for proper security, but because my University’s enrollment management system will not support certain characters. Currently we are using Novell and their ID management solution and it has a method for achieving this. We are trying to drop Novell (finally) and step into the Microsoft Light but this is the one sticking point for the die-hard Novell supporters. I’m open to any suggestion so long as it works flawlessly!
